    Trappers, when are raccoon and fox fur in their prime?

    I'm looking to do a little trapping in the Finger Lakes region. And, I do mean a little. I only plan to put out a half dozen traps. When have you noticed the fur going into prime? I really only want to take a couple animals, so I want the fur to be at it's most prime.

    Making my first knife

    Here is my build thread for my first knife. My birthday was this past week, and my wife bought me a piece of O1 tool steel. It is 1/8" thick by 2" wide by 18" long. It is enough to make two fixed blade skinning/hunting knives with a full tang. Here is a rough outline of the knife I'm planning on...

    Anti-depressants and SAFE

    So..... long story short, my father had a significant stroke this past week. Depression is common in people who have had strokes, and he's pretty depressed (starts to cry, gets upset, etc). So, they prescribed him Prozac. He won't be going home in the near future or anything. He has a lot of...

    C&R question

    So, I applied for my C&R license a bit ago. Talk me into a C&R license I've got a question about buying rifles. I understand that I can buy a rifle from an out of state seller (dealer, collector, or individual) and have it shipped to my door. No questions there. What about in state though? Can...

    Second auction buy - Suhl .71 Cal Potsdam musket (lots of pics)

    My other purchase at the auction was a musket made in Suhl, Prussia. It is a .71 caliber musket with a half stock and ~41 inch barrel. It is in very good condition (besides the half stock). The total length is about 4'9" and is almost as tall as my mother! This m1809 has a barrel date of 1813...

    32 rimfire on permit?

    I'm going to an auction on Saturday and there are a bunch of pistols in .32 rimfire. I want some wall hangers. I assume at least one or two will go for $50 or less because they don't have much collector value. .32 rimfire ammunition is extremely difficult to find and isn't available...

    Kaepernick didn't vote

    We all know Kaepernick is a freaking moron, but he didn't even bother to vote in this election. He's come out and said that he finds both Trump and Clinton unworthy of a vote, which I can't blame him for. However, rather than abstaining from voting for one of them and leaving the presidential...

    This might be a long shot.... My son will be turning 6 this coming Spring.

    Well, I didn't end up shooting an elk, but @Cleck and I had an awesome time in Colorado. I saw a bunch of elk on private and public land, tons of mule deer (including one absolute bruiser), a bear, a few moose (including a nice bull), a jackrabbit, and bunches of other wildlife.

I've shopped at Cabela's a bunch, but have only been to Bass Pro a few times. Bass Pro Shops hooks Cabela's in $5.5...

    Should we have separate forums for firearms and non-firearms politics

    The title pretty much says it all. Due to the national and state political climates, we all take an interest in politics. Should we have separate forums for "Firearms Politics and Law" and "Non-Firearms Politics & Law"? This would pull the political posts out of The Clubhouse.

    San Bernardino is having record gun violence year

    San Bernardino is having one hell of a time with crime and gun violence. They have a WAY higher homicide rate than Chicago. No gun laws have changed there.
